Eyllah is 15 and lives in Wilmette, Illinois. She is a sophomore at New Trier High School in Winnetka, Illinois where she is an honor roll student. Eyllah is entering her fourth competitive year with Extensions and she is honored to be a part of the Senior Company this year. Eyllah’s first artistic expression was figure skating but introducing her to Lizzie and Extensions Dance with its stellar artistic community of teachers has changed Eyllah’s focus forever, and her passion for contemporary dance runs deep and clear now. Eyllah loves all forms of dance and takes advantage of the wide variety of programs at Extensions by not only training in Contemporary Dance but also in Classical Ballet including Pointe, Jazz, Hip Hop, and Tap. Eyllah’s hunger to excel in dance has sent her traveling the globe to take summer dance intensives and she has been fortunate to attend the following programs, Alonso King, LINES Ballet, Summer of 2017, (San Francisco, CA), Interlochen Center for the Arts, Summer of 2017, (Interlochen, MI), Hubbard Street Dance, Summer 2018, (Chicago, IL), and Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company, Summer 2018, (Kibbutz Ga’ Aton, Israel). An aspiring choreographer as well as dancer, in February of 2018, Eyllah successfully completed her first choreographic piece, a contemporary group number, presented at the Still Inspired Dance Company’s “Future Artists” program. Eyllah loves spending time at Extensions in part because she has formed close friendships with her teammates and through their connection and support she feels at home. Outside of her dance studies Eyllah enjoys spending time with her furry and human friends from school at sports activities or just hanging out.
